- Florentino Perez has dismissed claims by UEFA that players from the Super League will be banned
- The Real Madrid president is the chairman of the newly-formed breakaway competition
- He added that the competition was necessary for clubs to bounce back financially following the impact of the pandemic
Chairman of the newly-formed European Super League Florentino Perez has disclosed that the breakaway competition is organised as a solution to a very bad financial situation.
The Real Madrid president dismissed claimed that teams in the Super League players will be expelled from European competitions and domestic leagues.
A total of 12 elite clubs in Europe have announced their breakaway to jointly form a competition that will likely usurp the Champions League.
And in a chat with El Chiringuito, Perez narrated the motive behind forming the European Super League.
Three elite clubs still in the Champions League may be kicked out of the competition as UEFA is set to punish them for their part over the breakaway Super League.
Same rules will likely apply to Arsenal and Manchester United in the Europa League according to Danish Uefa member Jesper Moller.
But Perez in his reaction said players who participates in the Super League will not get banned from international football matches. He said via Manchester Evening News:
"Players banned from international competitions and national teams according to UEFA? Don't worry, this will not happen. They won't be banned if they join the Super League."
"Real Madrid, Manchester City and Chelsea, and the other clubs of the Super League, will not be banned from the Champions League or domestic leagues, 100 per cent. I'm sure. Impossible."
Perez further says that clubs across Europe have been forced into forming a Super League due to the impact of Coivd-19 on finances.
The Real Madrid boss added that the game of football needs fresh ideas as it is in a position where it needs to evolve. He said:
"Many important clubs in Spain, Italy and UK want to find a solution to a very bad financial situation.
"The only way is to play more competitive games. If instead of playing the Champions League, the Super League helps the clubs to recover the lost earnings.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Tottenham have sacked Jose Mourinho with just six days to their Carabao Cup final against Man City.
It was gathered that Spurs have decided to dispense with Mourinho after just over a season and a half in charge.
They are in seventh position on the Premier League standings and at risk of missing out on a place in the top four.
